NITTY GRITTY 2.5FI-XP RECORD CLEANING MACHINE - CHERRY FINISHED OAK CABINET
The Nitty Gritty 2.5Fi-XP features Vac Sweep cleaning lips with thousands of microfibers, and a high quality vacuum motor. Fluid application is via a pump, and disc rotation is automatic, making for a nearly fully automatic record cleaning experience. Fluid must be manually pumped to the record surface. Exclusive to the 2.5Fi-XP is that it has two fluid containers. One can be used for cleaning solution, and the second for rinse water. Or, one could use two cleaning fluids independently, a pre cleaner in the first container, and regular cleaner in the second container. One could also apply pre cleaner manually, and remove it with the 2.5Fi-XP's vacuum, then apply and remove a second cleaner, and then apply and remove a rinse. With the 2.5Fi-XP, you can tailor record cleaning to your own standard of excellence. Records cleaned and rinsed are spotless, shiny, and beautiful.
Upside Down Makes a Difference
When a record is placed on the Nitty Gritty 2Fi-XP (or any Nitty Gritty machine for that matter) the underside of the record is the side being cleaned. The side you see from above is the dirty side. When the record is flipped to clean the dirty side, the clean side is now facing up. VPI, Loricraft and others clean from above. This makes it easy to see what is happening but as soon as the record is flipped over - the cleaned side is now on the platter where the dirty side was just seconds before!
Combine that with the fact that the Nitty Gritty machines do not have a proper platter at all: they have a spindle with label support. The right side of the LP rides atop the Vac Sweep lips; the left side of the LP floats in free air. This makes the 2.5Fi-XP more compact than competing machines.
